I have been receiving these email alerts from American Airlines since my last trip to Florida to see my dad. Sometimes you can get great deals on flights, but of course they need to fall in the time frame that you are traveling. Most deals are for middle of the week which isn’t exactly what most people desire. With some patience and flexibility in planning you might be able to save yourself a ton of money. Check the airlines that you would like to travel on and sign up for their alerts. Some of the travel sites like Travelocity and Cheaptickets will also net some good results.
Check with your airline of choice and sign up for their alerts to get the deals for your preferred carrier.
